Staging Your Home Improves how it Looks Online and in Person

A picture's worth a thousand words... isn't that what they say?

These before and after photos capture that idea to the extreme! Such a great blog about the need to de-clutter and empty your home of "extras" before listing it to sell.

If you're thinking of selling in the Greenwood, Center Grove, or Indianapolis area, contact Tonda for staging help! Her background in interior design combined with her many years as a real estate agent make her a GREAT resource for providing tips to each seller she lists!

The National Association of Realtors (NAR) and Google conducted a joint study showing that 90% of home buyers searched online during their home-buying process.  Since the online presentation of a home has a direct impact on whether buyers want to see it or not, how it looks is critically important. Sellers should make sure their home's online photos draw buyers in to see the home, and that it looks its best for in-person viewings, too.

Our Portland home staging company was hired to stage a mid-century home in a prestigious neighborhood; the home had been on the market for over a year, without a sale. Some of the older online photos show the Dining room was overcrowded, making the space feel smaller than it really was:

The Living room "before" showed buyers a lot of furniture, but where is the house itself?  Before portland house staging

Once staged, buyers can imagine themselves living in this home, which appears spacious & serene:

Maureen's before and after photos are incredible!  The lighting and reduction of furnishings made an enormous difference.

Thank YOU, Maureen, for your great photos! Sometimes it's pictures that do the best job convincing people of the impact proper staging can have in a home! Keep up the good work... and we'll keep an eye out for ideas that will work here, too!
